Projected Starters:
G:Anthony Black (Freshman)
The 6’7 lead guard can score, pass, and defend at a high level. He gives Arkansas the size they have had in past years under Coach Musselman on the perimeter, defending some of the top teams in America.
G:Nick Smith (Freshman)
The highest ranked Arkansas signee in the modern recruiting era is a phenomenal combo guard who has the ability to lead Arkansas to the Final Four. He was the clear
F:Jordan Walsh (Freshman)
Walsh is an über athletic forward with guard skills that can absolutely out athletic any other forward on opposing teams.
F:Trevon Brazile (Sophomore)
Brazile is a 6’9 Missouri transfer with the potential to be a star the NBA. He had a phenomenal European tour with the Razorbacks, scoring 28 points and added 9 rebounds in the finale against the Bakken Bears.
F/C:Kamani Johnson
Judging just based off of the European tour, Johnson was the most active inside presence for the hogs outside of Brazile. He had multiple almost double-doubles in four games. He is one of two players coming back from last season (the other is Devo Davis) and while he may start, Musselman has a lot of options at the big man spot.
